OHVA – Ohio Virtual Academy Pros & Cons

OHVA – Ohio Virtual Academy Pros & Cons
Depending upon which side you’re on, there’s Pros & Cons to everything.


  • K-12 curriculum used nationwide made available
  • online charter school conducted at home
  • assessments for arts, science and math to adjust curriculum to individualized strenghts
  • texts, some teaching aides, such as computer provided
  • some flexibility in logging hours, extra curricular activities (such as gym)
  • approximately 110 enrollees in Lucas County alone (there’s approximately 850 homeschool families in Lucas County)
  • “good” support staff available
  • school year calendar


  • still a “standardized” curriculum
  • assessments, testing & lesson schedule
  • you are not legally a “homeschool” student, you are enrolled in online charter school, so no “notification” and “assessments” equivalent to a homeschool student
  • school year calendar
  • hours, subjects, lessons must be logged in regularly, (not necessarily daily, but weekly)

A very dear friend is considering OHVA, and I think it may be just right for their situation…actually, I was the one who recommended the program to you! I know it’s not for our family.

Please share your experiences, opinions, and thoughts in the comments section. I’d like to have this blog as a resource for all home schoolers, regardless “how” you teach your children.

By the way, I recently read that K-12 the curriculum OHVA uses is one of the fastest curriculum that public schools are reviewing now for implementation too…sorry, I lost the link. [FYI, for me and my girls...this would *not* be a "pro" on our list.]
